's program. so whether it's bridging and roads or medical research or education or a number of other things fall under the discretionary category including definite spending. i simply say, we have to come to the realization that unless we can address our mandatory spending, which is running away with the budget and ever shrinking's congress' ability about how we use discretionary spending. unless we can get control of that, everybody is going fall short of what they want. i'm not debating as more money should go to medical research or building infrastructure or whatever. i'm simply saying all is being squeezed and i'm asking you to support your senator or senators or representatives in giving them the backbone and the courage to stand up we have to address this or everybody loses. and i think that is the message of the day. and now we had an election over that issue. we're having a debate in congress every day over that issue. until this point, the president has not indicated post election that he's all that happy about addressing the mandatory spending issue. and we can't get there until h
code, immigration to education, he promised reform. >> we will support democracy from the americas to the middle east because our interests compel us on behalf of those who long for freedom. >> every word was meant to reinforce his aggressive agenda. >> our agenda is not complete until are gay brothers and sisters are treated like anyone else under the law, for if we are created equal, the love we commit to one another must be equal as well. >> although racial equality was front and center, i think a lot of the second term will be devoted to other things. >> the president takes one last look, noting he will not see this again. will not ever be the focus of the 9000 person parade. he could barely stop himself from dancing, one last night to celebrate his historic presidency before he begins what is expected to be a huge fight with congress. >> president obama's speech dealt mostly with domestic issues. there was not much on foreign policy. let's take a listen to what he did have to say. >> we will uphold our values through strength of arm and rule of law. we will show the courage to
republic has achieved far more progress outcomes in alleviating poverty, health care, providing educational access and expanding opportunities for women in the shah's regime aggregate. hillary and i are happy to go into this morning q&a if you like, let me give you a couple examples of what i'm talking about. the islamic republic has developed a hope your system that is greatly increase and reduce infant and child mentality in iran. the provision of health care to rural areas has been particularly impressive since the revolution. the islamic republic is basically equalized outcomes in urban and rural setting in a knot or which is really quite extraordinary in an international context. get this. there are no iranian doctors and public health specialists working with state university and ngos state of mississippi to introduce iranian styled rural health care delivery into medically underserved parts of the mississippi delta. the islamic republic is also greatly expanded educational opportunities with letter series and basically eliminating gender disparity in educational access. one facet of
's about education, about research and development, it's about controlling our energy future. all of these are part of the equation. and we can't just do one piece of it, and we can't let that piece prevent us or become a smoke screen for not acting on the others. so that is the challenge. how do you put that puzzle together, move forward in a balanced way, so we're funding those kinds of priorities that we need to grow? >> it's interesting, doris, as you look at the historical sweep as well. here is a very toxic atmosphere in washington. a carryover of, you know, difficult debates. and the president who's popular, has a unified party, but also seems reluctant to go out on a limb on some big areas where he thinks he's not going to get much cooperation from republicans. >> i'm not sure that's true. i think gun control. he came out with sweeping proposals. i mean, that's certainly out on a limb. you're not going to get a lot of support perhaps from republicans. but his idea, i think, is that if you educate the country -- you know, when he talked to you, he mentioned lincoln's quote.
concerned about, people are concerned about health care costs and education costs. and to a lesser extent, when economic growth is stronger as it was later in the bush years maybe they're concerned about issues related to the bottom and so. education and health care and sort of the broader challenge of globalization, those things loom incredibly large and the republican imagination and those are not issues republicans like to talk about. this is where compassion conservatism didn't emerge any backing to emerge in the late 1990s from a period when bill clinton had been something republicans up and down washington for four, six years. and the whole point of bush's him was to craft a republican party that had something to say about education. that's something to say about health care. you can go back and said, i think justifiably, that something like the prescription drugs bill was too big, cost too much, should've bee been paid fn someone been paid for and so wanted you to make similar critiques with no child left behind by the republican party will never get back to the wilderness if it ju
if it is not the guns. >> i think we don't talk enough about the education and economic opportunities that these young people do not have. many of these young people who are involved in these type of activities are locked in two three, four, and five generations of poverty. we're locked in without opportunities often sometimes facing food desert. everything from finding good healthy food to eat, good jobs and educational opportunities and having a life, these things are locked away from these individuals and have been for decades now. i genuinely believe we can cut down on the gun violence in chicago and clang that paradigm. and then from there go after those who are illegally using guns. >> cenk: you know, lenny, i don't think anybody disagrees with you that addressing those issues is a good idea. i think it is. but you heard what profession pollock said there is as much crime in western european cities. they don't have the guns so less people die. in chicago here 500 people killed by guns. in japan on average less than 10 people killed by guns and japan is 125 million people in it. 10 people killed
is to educate people so that the great depression will never happen again. but it is of its time. the idea that we can teach people certain skills and that they learn these skills, we will all be okay. >> the dark side of the personal-finance industry on "after words" on c-span2. look for more booktv online. like us on facebook. >> british prime minister david cameron says that if the conservative party is returned to power at the next election, there will be a general referendum on britain's future in the european union. he outlined the new relationships in europe. this is a little bit more than 40 minutes. >> i would like to thank limburg for hosting this this morning. this morning i would like to talk about the future of europe. but first let us remember the past. seven years ago, europe was being torn apart by a catastrophic conflict. the skies of london lit by flames night after night. millions dead across the world in the battle for peace and liberty. as we remember the sacrifice, so we should also remember how the shift in europe for more to sustain peace came about. it didn't happe
laid out a number of executive actions was secretary arne duncan of the department of education that look at schools and the climate of bullying, school security increasing the number of school resource officers. a number of schools have metal detectors in them. if local schools want to increase their security, there are obviously free to do that. appropriations may be there to increase that. keeping the guns out of the hands of people who would use them for ill is the number one priority as well. i think you also have to take a look at what has happened in schools. a lot of people forget at columbine, they're actually where guards on the campus. they exchanged fire with the perpetrators of the crime. they were outgunned because the military-style assault weapons. it is not just having police and armed folks on school campuses. virginia tech had a police force and is what squad and they still were not able to bring down the shooter. host: the washington times above this --spreading gun hysteria is the way they put it. they ride gun owners should be concerned about the open seaso
, education, and agriculture. security is a very minor part, but an important part, but a very minor part. i think that is probably as it should be. the defense strategic guidance that i referred to in my opening comment tells me that in africa, we are to seek a light footprint and innovative approaches and low costs approaches to achieving the united states security objective. we have one base in africa. we have about 2000 people. it supports not only u.s. africa command, but u.s. central command and the transportation command as well. that is our residence on the continent. -- that is our presence on the continent. there are 100 personnel who are supporting africans in the effort to joseph kony and his senior lieutenants to justice. they are indicted by the international criminal court. there is a u.s. log that tells us to do that -- u.s. law that tells us to do that. if there is a law that tells us to do that, we go and do that. and it is important part of the consideration. as i mentioned, i have been to or need to of the different countries. -- i have been to 42 other different countrie
the reaching out really happens. he wants to and i want to see him really invest in educating our children. that means universal preschool education. that's true for somebody in rural alabama and in detroit. we really need to invest in infrastructure. he talked about that. that's good for all of america to physically be able to compete in the global economy. but there must be a pathway to jobs for those who are too often left behind. we absolutely have to create a pathway to citizenship. we have to go beyond the dream act to really including people so that not only are they able to contribute but the nation is able to benefit. we need to raise the minimum wage. we need to index it to inflation. these are things that aren't just the people who are black and latino. these are all americans. i think this reaching across requires that we see ourselves and the other. if we can see ourselves in the other, we realize that the agenda for those who are too often left behind is an american agenda >> brown: i have to point out that here we are talking about divided washington, right? divided america
to try to educate our youth about the responsibility of using a firearm, the dangers of using a firearm? >> yeah. in a true way, to educate young people about both the responsibility and the true dangers, that's not a bad thing. what is a bad thing is blatantly marketing these guns to young people. basically it exposes the true colors of the gun lobby. they're not concerned in the gun industry. they're not concerned about the prevention of gun violence. they're just concerned about selling more guns. the rest of the american public wants to engage in a meaningful conversation about exactly what you're saying. what we can do respectful of the second amendment right to own guns, respectful of the fact that hunting and target shooting and protection are deeply ingrained notions. and, you know, in a lot of our country. but have that conversation simultaneous to the risks associated with having guns in the home and what we can do to prevent tragedies. >> sure. the tragedy that is most fresh on everyone's mind, newtown. right now there's a hearing under way in connecticut about stopping gun v
individuals who are educated in our universities receiving masters and ph.d.s to be able to stay here. and that's a good thing. too many research facilities are being set up by microsoft in canada or elsewhere rather than doing it here simply because they can't find workers. >> i call it brainiacs, the resolution, and i think it's very important. let me ask you about this, in terms of the house, and probably in terms of the senate too, what about the security? what kind of border security. we've made a lot of investments, what more will be in this bill? >> well, for the first time you have real triggers here. some people concerned about granting citizenship. and let me tell you, the path to citizenship is a long and arduous one. it's not amnesty. amnesty, i think the best definition is cutting in line people who are able to access a path to citizenship won't be able to cut in line. but another step that will need to be taken, there's going to be a commission in this bill comprised of governors and attorneys general and border state community members who have to sign off the certain bo

five? top three? caller code jobs, education, and for the end of the war. -- caller: jobs, education, for the war to end. host: let's hear the president speaking on the economy, social security, and medicare. caller: we the people -- [video clip] >> many barely make it. we believe that america's prosperity must rest upon the broad shoulders of a rising middle class. we know that america thrives when every person confined independence. on the wages of honest labor, liberating families from the brink of hardship. we are true to our creed, when a little girl born into bleakest poverty has the same chances to succeed as anyone else because she is an american, free and equal, not just in the eyes of god, but in our own eyes. we the people still believe that every citizen deserves a measure of security and dignity. we must make the hard choices to reduce the cost of health care and reduce the size of our deficits. but we reject the belief that america must choose between caring for the generation that built this country and investing in the generation that will build its future.

properly since the senate was away for the holidays. the department of education telling school districts that they must provide sports for disabled students. much like title ix expanded sports opportunities for girls. those are your news headlines. now, back to lori and melissa. lori: rick, thank you so much. bitter cold temperatures and high wind leaves many people shivering. >> though cold is here for about two to three more days. we are already on day six of this cold. we have not gotten above freezing for about two weeks. a little bit of snow moving to hear. it is not heavy snow, though. maybe one-2 inches. the biggest snowfall will be across the central appellations. the biggest concern, though, will be for some freezing rain. when the ground is called, it is already frozen. freezing rain warnings across parts of kentucky and eastern tennessee. we may see about a half an inch of ice. that could cause some power outages and treacherous conditions on the road. moving forward to the next couple of hours. we will see some of that icing moving through parts of carolina. it will move thro
litigate around the country and to public education on lgbt and hiv-r elated rights issues. host: republican line. gloria, good morning. caller: good morning, gentlemen. thank you for taking my call to my family is six generations and the great state of california, and we have seen many changes take place, especially with regard to the issues that are on your program today. i am sure you probably know that in the 1950's, the greektown of san diego -- not san diego, san francisco, passed the ordinance to protect homosexuals from being attacked. you would go to jail if you beat someone out or when after someone and cause them harm because of their sexual preference. but we've also seen in the great state of california this issue turned into a mainly a white, very well established, male- dominated issue. the men who are gay in this state are not pork, they are not an agitated, and they -- not poor, not uneducated, and they are long on opportunity. i think the issue of not allowing people to have a say on what their preference is is a difficult and unpleasant hill to swallow. we've
. . the kind of crisis we have in the economy is not really so much for highly skilled, highly educated people who are mobile and work and a global environment and a large market. it is for the non college-bound people who used to go into factory jobs, blue-collar jobs that have been disappearing because of global labor competition. this brings back something on both sides. >> i talked to young people lot. mentoring them was real important. our industry changed a lot. it used to be joe roughneck out there on the raid. -- rig. today it is so highly technical. we see so many people out there. use the computers up on our raised floor. -- use the computers up on our -- you see computers up on our rig floor. there are guys following what we are doing, making real time decisions. it is a different world today than it was before. an incredibly dirty business. -- nerdy business. it has become that. >> we had an odd editorial meeting about two years ago in which someone came in and was talking to us about the need for investments in wind power and also in mandating the use of gas. multiple choice quest
, but you have an opportunity of society, education reform, economic growth, so that people can get on their feet and make the most of their lives and reach their potential. and that's what we're worried about losing in this country. >> one more on the budget. then a couple of other things. do you think there's a failure to get to know each other in washington, really get to know each other? you haven't had much contact with the president over the last couple of years. somebody pointed out to me something i thought was smart, which was solving the problem on the budget is not complicated. winning politically and solving the problem, that's hard. and that's what both sides seem to be locked into trying to do. >> well, i don't think that the president thinks we actually have a fiscal crisis. he's been reportedly saying to our leaders that we don't have a spending problem. we have a health care problem. that leads me to conclude he just thinks we ought to have more government-run health care and rationing. i don't think that's going to work. so there are a lot of democrats that are goo
and spelled it out. healthcare, energy, education. he has done healthcare. that's fairly radical. 18% of the economy. now he is talking about energy. the second thing. if you took an outsider and said what is the main issue of our time? it's the crisis of the entitlement state. it's insolvent. it's advanced in europe where they are out of money and we are going to get there in a couple of years. there is nothing in the speech about that. not even recognition there is a crisis. tall programs of the 20th century were enacted with the life expectancy is 62. medical technology is eventually non-existent. he said i'll take that, defend that and expanding the entitlement by adding obamacare he said i'll do energy that he spoke about a month after the first inauguration. with climate change and continue on the road in green energy stuff. he wants to create what he thinks he can in washington, new industry, string of solyndras until the end of time. expanding entitlement state in crisis. there is no change from who he was in 2009. he never has to be re-elected so he can be utterly unbound an
's a hard story to cover. the president has to be an educate on climate issue. by giving it the form, not a paragraph, he's gone a long way to start the second term discussion on climate we need. >> we can't judge how historians are going to see this. i suspect on many issues, they'll see it as forward thinking. that doesn't take away from the fact it probably will be seen as the next couple years as a partisan speech. i think they best test how partisan the speech is, is not what republicans say on it, what democrats running for re-election on the senate two years from now say on the speech and what democrats say in swing districts about the speech. i don't know you're going to get a lot of these democrats running in conservative states where the president got below 45%, and there are quite a few, in 2014, are going to be talking about gay rights, climate change and gun control. rober robert. >> look. every district is unique and different, as you well know and as we know, as we looking through the map. i think the speech, talking, as doug said about seneca falls and stonewall and s
educated young people has significantly changed the work force in china in the last decade. china now has 11 times as many college students as it did in 1999. and while that sounds like good news, the economy hasn't produced enough white collar jobs, so many of those graduates are unemployed, and wages are stagnated, so this is the challenging new world john kerry is going to face. good news is there is no one more prepared to face it. joining us from skype is zbigniew brzezinski. he is a counselor and trustee at the senator for strategic and international studies. dr. brzezinski thank you so much for being inside of our "war room." >> it's very nice to be in that war room. >> jennifer: thank you. it is great to have you. on this issue, will a strategy to help spread economic prosperity work in regions like the middle east or in china? >> it will take time. it will take a lot of time. but in the meantime i'm afraid some of the tendencies politically will be increasingly extremist and potentially violent. more so in the middle east than in china. the middle east is m
secretary of education arne duncan mention that he and his family saying they would be here today. this has grown up within just the past six weeks after the newtown shooting. these are not people who have a lot of experience organizing marches. they neil is something organ -- they feel this is something organic, very grassroots. they want to see where it will take them. >> thank you for your reporting ther there. >>> for much of the country, this morning it is cold out there. the national weather service warning of bitterly cold temperatures, possibly deadly conditions this weekend for much of the northeast, mid-atlantic, and the midwest. the tennessee valley and the carolinas are also on ice. any reprieve is still days away. frigid air also making life tougher for victims of superstorm sandy. many still don't have even the basic utilities to heat their home since the storm struck. susan candiotti is joining us from staten island. you spoke with a resident there who still can't go home. is that a problem for many? i mean, what is life like for these people now? >> reporter: it is a problem
of you. and our goal is to educate people so that this great depression can never happen again. but it's very much in the wake oof the time an idea that we can teach people certain skills and if they learn the skills we will all be okay spent the dark set of the personal-finance industry with helaine olen saturday night at 10 on after words on c-span2. look for more booktv online, like this on facebook. >> i think it's all an evolutionary process. you go into this role and my sense is that you never get comfortable if you're always pushing for change and growth, not just in yourself but in the issues you care about. you are never done. so there's never a point in time where you feel like, they are, i am now here and i can do this the same way all the time. it's always changing. they changed is given the status issues of the country, and you never know what those are going to be from one day to the next. so you have to be flexible and fluid, and open to revolve. >> the first ladies, their private and public lives. c-span is teaming up with the white house historical association for a fi
states, you have to do education and you got to do treatment, because what we have is just a revolving circle of demand and we are not alone. europe is a huge demand, russia now increasing demand. cocaine routes and marijuana routes are not just coming up from colombia and other countries and latin america and the caribbean up to here, but going across the atlantic and going to other countries and comes from asia. it is pandemic. so i think we need a more comprehensive approach, one where it is less finger pointing and you work cooperatively to understand everybody's role in trying to do something about it. i have always felt that this label of war on drugs, is kind of artificial, because war implies is it's all out and you have to win. and i don't think it's all been out. and principally because we have failed to do our part in education, and abstinence. we have to engage ourselves and that would help establish credibility and viability with other countries. >> thank you very much for those answers. >> senator paul. >> senator kerry, thanks for coming today and your testimony. i agree
% from the national public radio, maybe other departments, department of education by 1%, through attrition, there's 75,000 jobs that are now filled. we shouldn't fill them. and then as people retire, re we don't fill those jobs jobs so gs hurt. you see the cost of living adjustment, to make it more real, that would reduce a whole out lot of our budget that doesn't need to be there the cola is adjusted on certain -- we all know what has happened the cost of housing. has it gone up? no. so why do we still have these adjustments of social security, keep ratcheting up the social security payments. we know it's broke. i want to use these numbers one more time. if you take eight years off the government numbers, you have an how hold 21,000 does, pending $38,000 and $142,000 credit card debt. so women down in washington, dc said we're going to cut that budget. you know what okay cut it by? $385. so you're the ones going to pay the price for this. i'm home free. if i want to buy $84,000 america america, so i go to my dealer and she says, sign here. he said your credit card is maxed0. y
